Very few cities in the world have public centres displaying and selling furniture on a permanent basis in addition to changing exhibitions. A rare opportunity to see high-quality Australian work covering several decades of craft design. And shopping too!

If you love quality furniture and jewellery/clothing then a visit to the Design Centre is a must if you visit Launceston. Local designer/makers display in the centre and the quality is very high. Be careful, however, as the bank balance may take a bit of a hit, if you stay too long.

We visited to view the exhibits and were shocked at the prices which were being asked. A simple linen dress was $270 and earings started at $45. There was some lovely designs but the prices of the goods really put us off.
